Taraka Rathna, son of Mohanakrishna, celebrated his birthday on February 22.
Mohanakrishna, who worked as cinematographer for several films under the banner of Ramakrishna Cine Studios, is now producing Venkatadri with Taraka Rathna as hero under the direction of Samudra. Presenter of the film T. Prasanna Kumar says, "So far, 50% of the shooting is complete. The next schedule is slated to begin in March. We are making efforts to release the film in May. The film will prove a trendsetter and will be the biggest hit yet for Taraka Rathna."
Selva, who choreographed the action scenes for Yamadonga, Pourudu and other such films, says, "There are a total of eight fights and all of them were shot with big budgets. Taraka Rathna has done the fights personally though they were risky. The film will enhance his image."
